    I'm writing this at 2 AM,

    and I don't think I'll be going to bed any time soon. Sleep is for the weak or something, right?

    I embrace this. I am tired of being told I have

    to work at certain hours and get up at a certain time because that's what's socially acceptable. If other people don't get the magic of night time that's fine, more for the minority of us. Tired of being pc.

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    I sleep very little,

    and then at very odd hours. I love the night, and watching dawn break. If I sleep at night I still like to get up early.Maybe I'm strange. If you see me online, message me for a chat.

    When I say I am a night owl,

    I mean I awake up around 5 pm and go to bed at 9 am. Late night hours is the best time for me to experience the peace and quiet I cherish.

    i stay awake at night to try to spend time with

    my tattoo artist boyfriend because he gets home late but he wants nothing to do with me. So I'm just up until 3 in the morning feeling alone. Basically by myself even though i'm a foot away from him.

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    Last night I made a post about how i'm trying

    to form better sleeping habits and I made a night time / sleep schedule. I stuck to it last night and tested it out - and it worked better then I thought it was going to go for the first time! I got about 7 hours of sleep, and I feel so refreshed this morning. Better then I've...

    Well at least I used to be.

    I used to stay up ALL night long just on my computer. I think since I'm an introvert I am getting into that habit again.... I honestly dunno if that's a good thing or a bad thing... I guess it's both. Cuz the good part is you get to do whatever you basicly want...

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    4:23am and going strong.

    I don't even like staying awake this late, but the forest and neighborhood definitely have a certain beauty to them at this time. Never gonna die:

    I've never had a regular sleep schedule,

    nor do I plan to change that any time soon. I prefer to be up in the late hours of the night, talking to those who think the same. People call me crazy for it. I see no problem with it.

    Eventually, insomnia is instilled in me.

    .. As if my biological clock is opposite the physical one, I love night as it is dark and tranquil, and try to sleep during the day not to let the kerfuffle annoy me.

    For some reason, I spend all evening wasting

    time online, then I decide midnight is a good time to start cleaning the house. I should really just go to sleep

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    Saturday nights are the worst,

    I just can't get myself off to bed for love nor money. Well into the early hours and when I finally manage to drag myself off to bed it's 3am. I snooze for a while and then wake up only to indulge in some more online activity - surfing, looking at recipes, playing a game or two...
